Zechariah’s ministry overlapped that of Haggai. His first message was a follow-up warning not to slip back into their old ways. This message begins with an offer of repentance followed by a word of warning. It ends with two reminders about God’s word. It will remain forever, and it will be recognized as truth by everyone. Generations come and go, but God’s Word remains forever. We must obey God’s Word and not allow our history to determine our future.
